Their detailing of stories about my experiences & goals really helped me think about my career from a more strategic perspective. Along with Preyash, I was also assisted by Shikha (an ISB alum) & I must say the whole team was accessible & involved. The LilacBuds technology portal was really helpful in keeping the whole process streamlined and on track.

ISB uses a holistic approach to evaluate applicants based on past academic performance (strong GMAT+GPA), impact work and extracurricular activities, work experience (usually 2-4 years), essays, recommendations, achievements and other non-academic criteria.

a.) Competitiveness: ISB is one of the top business schools in India and receives a large number of applications each year. Applicants are concerned about the high level of competition and wonder if their profile and achievements are strong enough to secure admission.

b.) GMAT/GRE scores: ISB requires applicants to submit GMAT or GRE scores as part of their application. Candidates may worry if their scores are competitive enough to meet the school's requirements. They may also have concerns about the test preparation process and how to achieve a competitive score.

c.) Essays and recommendations: Applicants are often anxious about writing compelling essays that effectively showcase their personal and professional attributes. They may also have concerns about selecting appropriate recommenders who can provide strong endorsements of their abilities.

d.) ROI and career opportunities: Applicants often want to understand the networking and career prospects associated with an MBA from ISB. They may be concerned about the strength of ISB's alumni network, the reputation of the school among employers, and the availability of job opportunities after graduation.

Diverse opportunities are available to ISB students. They have placements across various sectors, such as consulting, finance, technology, media and marketing. Companies from various industries visit the ISB campus to employ students. These include top companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe, McKinsey, BCG, Citi Group, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Google, KPMG, Infosys, Tata, Wipro, HCL, Deloitte, Ernst and Young, and Flipkart. ISB also helps its students develop employability skills like networking, interviewing, and personal branding.

The total fees to pursue an MBA at ISB is Rs. 43 lakhs for one year. Financial Scholarships are awarded to exceptional candidates based on academic excellence, industry experience, diversity considerations, past commitments and other unique criteria. ISB also offers several need-based scholarships and awards. Information on the same is available on the ISB website.

Taking a loan to pursue studies at ISB is a personal decision and depends on several factors such as financial constraints, career goals, earnings potential after completing the course and ability to repay the loan. However, ISB alumni have reported success in their careers, thus making an education at ISB worth the investment. Moreover, ISB’s loan counseling team assists students in availing loans from prominent banks and NBFCs in India.
